I was making minor changes and ended up changing the whole design!
Hopefully to the better..
I still have no clue about html and css I'm just playing around and hoping for the best hehe
I wanted a better "intro" to my website that was more focused on my art than anything else.
Some features of my paintings and big image links to my paintings, drawings and tutorials.
Well I don't have many tutorials but hopefully I can add some soon but there is atleast a "making of" and a couple of process gifs. :P
I wanted some awesome personal background but that means I have to make one I think and.. I'm just not in the mood for that right now >.<
So this will have to do for now, added some swirly things (originally made for the wedding image but got scrapped in the end) so atleast something selfmade.
What to do think, does it look better than before?
Any tips how to make it look even better?

Wedding portrait commission
This was my first attempt to paint a wedding portrait and it really took me forever!
A whole new experience and I had many moment I just wanted to rip my hair off in frustration.
I learned a couple of new things with Easy Paint Tool Sai, how you can add textures and customize brushes better. I still have alot to learn and I really need to practise more.
It didn't turn out as I hoped for, well it never does, but it was not suppose to look so.. realistic, I don't know how it happened but it did >.<
The client was very happy with it atleast and that is the most important thing and that makes me happy. :)
Here you can see some close ups.

This is a digital painting I started around last years Easter but never managed to finish it in time and forgot it after that.
New Easter, new energy and time to finish it! I changed it abit, added a little bunny instead of the original little girl, sorry girl.. bunny more cute D:
Prints are now available at DeviantArt and Society6
Here is gif that show you the full process of the painting. Starting with the sketch I did by hand then to how I re sketched it digitally to a clean lineart and finally to how I coloured it.

I heart you
Made this drawing last year when I was reinstalling windows.
Valentine's Day came and I wanted to do something for that day but didn't really have time to start on something new so I scanned this one in and improved it abit and uploaded it for you to see. :)

ThePuzzleArcade.net made a digital jigsaw puzzle of my Panda Ride yay!
You can download the puzzle here: Panda Ride Puzzle
There are many other amazing pictures available for download as well so check it out at: www.thepuzzlearcade.net
You can change the difficulty from 25 up to 200 pieces.
If needed you can read the instructions here: Instructions
I didn't even know digital puzzles existed until now when they asked me about it.
Was a long time ago I laid a puzzle, it was fun to do it again. And no need to occupy a table and loose pieces etc!
If you want your own art as a puzzle go and check out the puzzle group on DeviantArt here: thepuzzlearcade.deviantart.com
Anyway, have fun, I know I had :D

Started as a little doodle/sketch in my sketchbook last year and somehow turned into a drawing.
Scanned it and edit it abit in Easy Paint Tool Sai since my traditional drawing skills are not the best hehe
I do not have anything "better" to show right now.. I'm abit creatively depressed at this moment, don't know why but hopefully I snap out of it soon because I have drawing work to do.
I just feel I'm abit stuck, not sure what I want to achieve with art, what I want to draw/paint, what my goal is and if art is even what I should spend time on.
It is not as fun as it used to be and not sure how I can make it fun again.
Anyone else have/had the same feelings and if you did, what did you do to make them go away?

Updated my improvement meme on DeviantArt.
I must say I'm rather disappointed in myself that I didn't improve more last year,
Well we all know what that means, I have to work harder!
But I think I improved a liiitle bit in traditional drawing atleast, you can't see them here because.. I'm rather embarrassed to show them.
They just look awful compared to the digital ones >.<
I just love digital drawing, there are so many things you can do to get a better result but yeah.. then you are called a cheater for some reason.
It is just a matter of practise and I need to practise alot traditionally.
When people come and ask me to draw something infront of them.. I rather not.. I am just not comortable with it. Digitally? sure no problem!

What do you think, how am I progressing in your eyes and what do you think I need to work on? Any criticism is helpful. :)
I apologise if my English is horrible.

Here you can see a summary of my "best" works from this year.
Rather disappointing in my opinion, wish I had more to show and progressed way better but hopefully I'll do better next year. :)
Have an awesome new year!

Little Santa in a chimney
So this is this years Christmas card!
Whole year I had an other image in my mind but as always I start way too late and ended up having to something more simple than I had imagined. Better than nothing I suppose and I hope you like it anyway.
Hopefully I start on time next year so I can make something more magical :D
For those interested, even though it will be after Christmas, this painting will be up for sale soon on various products in Zazzle, Deviantart and Society 6.
And I also want to say thank you so much everyone who bought my Christmas Cards this year, it means alot to me! :)
I wish you all a Merry Christmas! Have a wonderful weekend!
